Starting Tuesday morning, May 8th, crews will be working on a road improvement project on Colonial Avenue.

Crews will be working near Virginia Western Community College to improve sidewalks, build bike lanes and put in potential roundabouts instead of having lights at the intersections to make traffic smoother.

The project is expected to take a year and a half to complete and cost about six million dollars.

Officials say there are no official detours in place but to avoid this area if possible especially during peak traffic hours.
